July 7, 1924-November 28, 2012
It is with heavy hearts that we the family of Florence Murphy announce the passing of our Mom. She has gone to be with Dad who predeceased her in 1999.
Mom stayed at home and raised her family. She loved to cook, knit, garden, watch ball games and found joy in writing letters and sending cards to her family and friends. Mom was a longtime member of the Evergreen Choristers and also enjoyed many years as a Co-Val Chorister.
Mom is survived by her six children Sharon (John), Brenda (Tom), Stan, Patrick, Stephen and Richard (Lisa). Stephen looked after Mom allowing her to remain at home in her final years.
Mom loved her grandchildren Tammie (Kenan), Juanita (Graham), Kenny, Jason (Cheryl), Craig (Virginia), Brock (Kathy), Logan (Audrey), Kendra and Laura. Mom was also blessed with 9 great-grandchildren and a loving extended family.
Please join the family in Celebrating the Life of Florence Foster Murphy, Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 1 pm at St. John the Divine, 579 5th Street, Courtenay, BC.
We love and miss you. Mom, we put the cane away!
